Students are responsible for taking proper care of all books and digital devices assigned to them. A record is kept of all books and equipment assigned, and the school maintains the condition of each. Should a book be lost or damaged, the student will be required to pay the replacement cost of the book – some textbooks cost in excess of $100 each! We would appreciate parents expressing the importance to their child(ren) of taking proper care of their books, digital devices, and accessories.
Also, if a student is caught defacing school property, the student (and ultimately the parent) will be assessed the cost of replacement or restoration of the item to its original condition when practical.
The current Maine law calls for the parents to pay double the damage.
